Clio 4 RS Much Faster Than Clio 3 RS! [Video]
On pear at least, the tradeoff seems less than inspired. You get exactly the same power level as the old car and lose the feel of the naturally aspirated 2-liter and the pleasure of shifting gears yourself. For what you lose, you only gain 0.2 seconds in the standard o to 100 k/h acceleration time.
The reality is the Clio 4 RS is much faster than the Clio 3 RS. This test conducted by French publication Magazine Motorsport shows the newer car pulls a huge lead in a drag race. The newer car has more torque, broader power distribution, quicker gear changes, a lighter chassis and launch control.
We knew the Clio RS 200 EDC was fast, but not this fast. Time to start sell the old Clio RS and see a man about a €10,000 loan!
